Swedish Television Finds Unique McCain Footage

Sweden’s national television has released what it claims is previously unpublished film footage of US Republican Party Presidential Candidate John McCain leaving North Vietnam following his release from a prisoner of war camp.

The footage has reportedly been in SVT archives for the last 35 years, but has now been released on DVD to accompany a book about the Vietnam War by the Swedish author Erik Eriksson. The footage shows McCain and other former POWs leaving a bus and standing on the tarmac at Hanoi’s airport.

McCain’s name is heard being called out, after which a slightly limping McCain is greeted by a high ranking U.S. military officer on his way to an airplane after more than five years of captivity as a prisoner of war.
